Sometimes You Get What You Ask For...!


I've always heard you should be careful what you ask for, because you might just get it!

That holds true for this poor slob. You have to give this woman credit, though. She managed to give this jerk just what he asked for and did so without getting hurt! That's the important part!

This lady has a lot of nerve and more than her share of luck!

Woman crashes into police building with carjacking suspect on her hood

A man jumped on the hood of a woman's car today on U.S. 71 in Kansas City, pointed a gun at her and told her to drive.

So she did.

She stomped on the accelerator and drove straight from U.S. 71 near 29th Street to Kansas City Police Headquarters at 1125 Locust St., where she rammed through a garage door with the man still clinging to her hood.

A civilian worker in a booth in the garage radioed to officers that someone was trying to ram into the garage. The car hit the door three times, she reported, before breaking through.

Once the car got into the garage, the man climbed off and ran away. Officers arrested him nearby as he tried to get on a city bus. He did not have the gun with him. Police believe he may have dropped it during the ride to headquarters. He was at a hospital being treated for minor wounds, under police guard.

Police were interviewing the victim, a woman in her 30s, and investigating the incident as an assault. She said the suspect had stopped traffic on U.S 71 by dancing in the road before he jumped onto her car.

The garage door was ruined in the 12:15 p.m. incident. The impact crumpled the metal and broke the glass windows.

The victim's car sustained minor scratches and remained inside the headquarters garage.

Police officials said it was the first time they could remember a crime victim -- or anyone -- crashing through the garage, much less to deposit a suspected criminal.

"Very effective," noted Sgt. Tom Dearing.

One classy lady, I'd say! Hope the "so-called" car-jacker learned something from this. However, I wouldn't count on it!

How about some fresh coffee this morning? Sure would enjoy the company!

It's hard to argue with methods that work!

He messed with the wrong lady.

When I was a firefighter, a few times we had burning cars pull right up to the firehouse.

The only thing that was missing, she should have tied a ribbon and a big red bow on him. She delivered the "gift" to the police.

Quick thinking on the ladies part. Kept her cool and handled the situation

Hey Sixbears...
Seems to me that folks thought they were doing you a favor by bringing you the burning car!

Glad they didn't catch the station on fire!

Thanks, my friend, for coming by today!


Hey DD...
Wonder what the guy thought when he saw where she ended up?

I'm just glad she wasn't hurt!

I appreciate you coming by today!


Hey Ben...
Pretty level headed lady, that's for sure!

Thanks, buddy, for coming over today!

This is what I told my kids to do if anyone ever tried a version of this with them. Drive! fast! Hit something, a building, a car in the parking lot. Just don't go with him. you have a high chance of being killed. So take it into your own hands, you are wearing a seat belt. He probably isn't. Put the odds in your favor.

Hi HJ, now that was one determined woman and good for her, but not so good for her car or the hijacker. Hope you and your home are safe from all those fires I'm reading about and seeing in your state. Fresh coffee would be great if it's not too hot on the patio.

She was quick thinking and delivered the criminal to the right people..women have to think defensively never leaving the inside of their car when someone jumps on the hood..oh, my she was very cool thinking..
